It’s bad…really bad. Now that the sun is shining and the winter is officially in retreat from the premises, the Spring fashion displays are doing a number on my willpower. Let’s just say that my wallet (and the plastic within) has gotten quite a workout in the past couple of weeks. But…I’m in the process of building my Spring wardrobe…and I think I’ve pretty much gotten the pieces I need.
May I please turn your attention to this dress? I am in love with this dress. It cost me a mere $25 at Old Navy, and I already have HUGE plans for it. I love it when I find a piece that I automatically begin pairing with the items already in my closet in my mind…as soon as I lay eyes on it. Hence, the two outfits. I “dressed up” the dress for church this morning with a white blazer, and then changed both boots and jacket for a more casual look.
Not only is the dress versatile, it is also the perfect combination of the navy dress and floral print dress I have sought out for the past year. I really have to give Old Navy credit for reading my mind and giving me a cheaper (MUCH cheaper) solution to my two dress problem. Because I was able to knock out two of my “Closet Staples” list items, I could also purchase the white dress I had been seeking for almost as long as the navy/floral one!
